Researchers Developed Veil for the Security of Private-Browsing Functions
Researchers have developed a new system called Veil to patch security holes left open by the private-browsing functions of web browsers, according to a study conducted on February 23, 2018.
People using shared computers will be protected by this new system called Veil. According to the private browsing that exists, initially, data will be retrieved by the browser and store it in the memory. Once the session is completed, the data retrieved is erased. Memory management has become a complex process in today’s computers. Usually, a browser does not know the location of the data and even if the browser knew the location, deleting them would not be possible.
A solution to this problem has been brought in by Veil. Till the data gets displayed on the screen, the data loaded into the memory remains encrypted. A version of the requested page is translated to veil format with the help of a special server called the blinding server. A few security features are included in Veil.
One being a bunch of meaningless codes that are added to every page by the blinding servers. These codes help in keeping the attackers away from the pages being browsed by the users. If this security is not enough for the users, Veil has another option as well. A picture of the requested page is sent to the user so that there is no code in the user’s system for that particular page. When any part of the image is clicked by the user, location of the click is recorded by the browser and sent to the server. After processing, a new image is sent to the user.
This development will benefit in the growth of web real-time communication market, as elaborated in the web real-time communication market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
